Pt. 1

lorde

Lorde’s curated Mockingjay, Pt. 1 soundtrack is HERE. The roster includes Stromae featuring Lorde (!?!), CHVRCHES, Tove Lo, Charli XCX, Major Lazer, Tinashe, Bat for Lashes, Grace Jones, XOV, The Chemical Brothers, Lorde, and Raury.  Talk about unique, eh?  I can foresee fans not accepting the diversity of the sound, but look at the diversity between the districts.  At first listen, I am intrigued most by Raury’s “Lost Souls;”  XOV’s “Animal” is a top track; and The Chemical Brothers totally capture the competition of the Games and simultaneous uncertainty of the future (rebellion) with “This Is Not a Game.”  Because really, is the theme of this series about just a game, or something deeper…

Lorde, I commend your choice in lyrical connections to the series, while creating a solid body of work that can be seen independently.  I’m eager to see how the tracks are played in the film.  In theaters this Thursday.

TGIF

Lorde turned 18 (!) the other day and released the video for “Yellow Flicker Beat.”  Instead of celebrating that, let’s rejoice to the Lorde that it’s Friday.  TGIF.

hungry lorde

Lorde is pulling a Jay (not mocking jay, but Jay-Z) and curating the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1.  This is the first released song from the track, from none other than Lorde herself, who did so in celebratory fashion: Pure Heroine turned one on the 27th. Nom nom nom.

Nirvana Hall of Fame

Lorde performed “All Apologies” alongside Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear.  This completely blew my mind and I cannot wait for one second to play it on repeat forever. 

Joan Jett, St Vincent and Kim Gordon were other lady rockers that made tonight so awesome.

Check out a small blip of the Lorde’s performance here.  Can’t wait to see all the performances and hear about the evening.  I’m a huge Nirvana fan and I’m also a huge nerd.  I can’t help it.  a

King Bee

We all know Bruce Springsteen is the Boss but now he has dubbed himself “King Bee.” In his cover of “Royals” live in Auckland, New Zealand last night Bruce put a twist on the original version by changing “queen bee” to “king bee” most appropriately. This acoustic version is boss mostly because Bruce can do no wrong and I’m sure Lorde is digging it. c.
